Now, Melanie Tem and Steve Rasnic Tem have re-imagined the story, expanding on the ideas to create a compelling work that examines how people find a family, how they hold a family together despite incomprehensible tragedy, and how, in the end, they find love. Loosely autobiographical, The Man on the Ceiling has the feel of a family portrait painted by Salvador Dali, where story and reality blend to find the one thing that neither can offer alone: truth.

Melanie Tem. Leila Blackwell is a normal person, trying to live a normal life. In her mind, being a nearly blind, atheistic lesbian should have no effect on her ability to do so. Unfortunately, an old high school acquaintance and religious zealot named Russell Gavon sees her keratitis as punishment for all of her life sins, and takes it upon himself to "rescue" her from her affliction through religious intervention. He kidnaps her, and thus begins the most harrowing time of Leila's life. One of the strengths of Slain in the Spirit lies in the veracity of the characters
